Soldier Crab

By Linda Dalgliesh

Regular price $18.00 Sale

Trio for piccolo, oboe, vibraphone, c.1'40

This piece depicts a dance between three characters on the sandflats. The soldier crab is represented by the piccolo, a shorebird by the oboe, and the sea by the vibraphone. The soldier crab pops out of the sand and begins to forage. When the shorebird comes too close, the crab spirals down into the sand, but the bird probes the sand with its long bill. The tide rises imperceptibly, filling small pools across the flats and obliterating the tracks of crab and bird.
